What is the Bachelor in Engineering Technology at KU Leuven all about?

In essence, engineers find intelligent solutions to technological problems. Engineers at Campus Group T- the 5E engineers, however, are more than technology experts. They have distinct entrepreneurial skills and are capable of coaching both themselves and others. Our engineers are aware of their place in the world and the impact they have on nature and culture. Finally, they are big-picture thinkers with the ability to see complex problems from a systemic, integrated perspective.

5E engineering cannot be learned from a book or through individual work. 5E engineering is a matter of developing and fine-tuning an ensemble of qualities over the entire course of your studies and career. Collaboration, cross-professional experience, diversity and a plurality of world visions are crucial to the 5E engineering vision.

This extraordinary vision requires an extraordinary programme. The principles underlying the engineering curriculum at Campus Group T Leuven create a learning and working environment that encourages on-going personal and professional development.

Our graduates enjoy excellent employment opportunities. They are resourceful, enterprising, inquiring, and have an open outlook as an engineer and a citizen of the world.
